    Hey there,

    First off, I have little or no Unix experience! :D I've been left in the lurch after our IT chap decided he no longer enjoyed his job at my company, and this has landed on my shoulders.

    I've been trying to configure CPAN on Fedora Core 2 all afternoon.

    I upgraded it to the latest version, but whenever I try to install *any* perl module (for example Imager) I get the following error:

    To me, it feels like CPAN can't find the MAKE command (excuse my naive Unix approach here...!!) I have been crawling Google and MSN for most of the day, but sadly this is going a few inches above my head.

    The configuration path to MAKE is '/usr/bin/make' which is just the default path that the CPAN configuration script suggested. How can I verify this path is correct?

    Please install make:
    yum install make

    You can try to install Imager-0.51.tar.gz manually. Unpack it, go to the new directory and run
    make test
    make install
